hello! I recently added a custom camera profile to test out some settings in Lightroom CC. But now I want to delete that profile, is there a way to do so?

Right-click on the profile. That should give you a contextual menu with one of the options to delete it.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I tried but it only shows "Reset Hidden Profiles" option. Maybe I need to delete from the folder? Where are camera profiles located for Lightroom CC?

Interesting. I can do it for some (e.g. those in custom named sets), but not for others. Let me switch this to a bug.

I have the same problem, I use xrite color checker that creates profiles. When I go to delete profiles by right clicking it does not give me delete.

Same for me – can't delete custom profiles and can't find where they are on disk.

This link might help. (Spoiler alert: It didn't work for me.)
https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/kb/faq-install-presets-profiles.html

The profiles that show up for RAW files cannot be found at any of these locations.

I did do a search and found that the profiles that I am seeing are DCP files that were imported from the CC sync.

A search in Win Explorer yielded this:

C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\3a344dd2bb6f4adf81915bbae616ff62\cr_cameraprofiles

UPDATE

I just tested and deleting the DCP profiles from the directory removes them from Lightroom CC.

Hopefully, this syncs back with the CC servers and deletes them.


Now I am debating on whether or not it's worth trying to import the VSCO presets since they decided to discontinue support of them.

Version 12.3, an update to Camera Raw, went live on June 15, 2020 and contains a fix for this issue. Please install the update and respond back if it does not cure the issue for you. Thank you for your patience!

I updated CR, LR and LRC to latest (2020-06-25).  When I try right click on a profile in Lightroom CC (non-classic: cloud), nothing happens. 

When right clicking on the profile "group", i get 'reset hidden profiles' as posted above. 
This is on Mac with OSX Catalina

Are you clicking on a user profile (removable) or a system profile (not removable)?

I imported it on LR CC on my Mac desktop, going to Manage profiles, and Import. 

It showed up under a group called "Profiles". That's where I try to right click and nothing happens.

Ah, this is a Camera Matching Profile. To delete you must use the OS. 

Close Lightroom
Go to Macintosh HD / Users / [your username] / Library / Application Support / Adobe / CameraRaw / CameraProfiles / 
Delete the profile you wish to remove. 
Launch Lightroom.

Have you tried updating to Lightroom Desktop 4.0 to see if the profile is now deletable?

Same here. Lightroom 4.0. If the profile is installed under "user profiles" it can be deleted. But if a custom profile is installed in "profiles" or "camera matching" it can not be deleted. (There is not even an option for it).
